‘Social media influencer’ guilty of sex charges

Social media sex charges news

A male social media influencer has been found guilty by a High Court jury in Auckland of sexual offences against two men today.

This is the second time the man had to face court, as his earlier trial was cancelled due to a nationwide COVID lockdown.

The two victims were teenagers at the time of the offending, while the defendant was in his 20s.

The defendant was convicted on five charges of sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection in a split decision. The jury found him not guilty on one charge of sexual violation, three counts of blackmail, and two counts of stupefying.

He was remanded in custody for sentencing later this year.

      • Coulter’s law.

        When it’s a straight white male who once clicked “like” on an obscure Trump or Nigel Farage tweet 6 years ago, the media make sure his name and life history are out there within a day.

        Any other perpetrator who doesn’t fit the desired racial or political profile is inevitably granted name suppression, sometimes lasting until even long after they’ve already been sentenced. And a job title like “social media influencer” already tells you pretty much everything you need to know about this scumbag.

        I mean FFS there was a guy working in Jacinda’s office two years ago sexually harassing women, and how much did we learn about it? Anyone remember his name?

        But yeah, there absolutely isn’t a two tiered justice system 👍
